"Ad apps": strictly for advertising

A couple days ago I posted about "crap apps": entertaining and completely useless apps A couple days ago I posted about "crap apps": entertaining and completely useless apps that in some cases make a lot more money for the developer than serious apps. Now the Wall Street Journal has an article on what might be called "ad apps": apps whose main purpose is to promote a product.



Review: Flower Garden

image

My hope was to get this out before Mother's Day was over - at least by me - but I missed it by "that much".  Anyway, I thought I'd take a couple minutes to talk about a relatively new iPhone application called Flower Garden.  I hesitate to call this a game, because the only thing in it that's reminiscent of gaming is the need to unlock the various types of flowers you can grow.  I suppose a better classification for this would be an "entertainment" package.  In the end, though, it's really mostly one of those Zen like relaxation packages.&nb

image

3 lucky readers are going to win a copy of SBSH SafeWallet by giving up their iPhone security secrets. What am I blathering about? Well, I wanna know how you keep your iPhone data secure...? Not still storing passwords and account numbers in the notes application, I hope. Is your phone jailbroken? That could be a problem if it's lost, or malware finds it's way to it.

Ok, is it just me or is TVU (iPhone app and OS X beta player) just an excellent little window to the world? 



Great video on "crap apps"

The Wall Street Journal has posted a fun video about "crap apps," those apps the are entertaining — and useless. I've posted about some of them. The irony, which isn't of course lost on the Wall Street Journal, is that these apps often make a lot more money than the serious apps.



Quick Look: G.I. Joyride

Since the iPhone world seems to be filled with causal gamers, I'm really surprised G.I. Joyride got overlooked.  The game is made by Trapdoor Inc., and it's the kind of mindless, humorous entertainment that can keep you busy for minutes... or hours if you're not careful.

 Top Gun, a new aerial combat shooter based on the hit Movie was recently released by Paramount Digital Entertainment (developer Freeverse). This is just my first impressions of the game, and you can get it now for a $1.99, and I think it's worth the 2 bucks. I'll circle round to do a full review later, but it's pretty cool.



Panorama with Panolab

image

I’ve been tinkering with photo apps lately and came across a really excellent app for stitching together your iPhones photos into a panoramic scene, PANOLAB’s free app has a lot of utility with a pretty straight forward interface.  You can load existing photos or just snap photos on the go then piece them together, rotating them with finger movements on the screen with excellent control.  When you get the images aligned just the way you want them, you can then crop and save them. 



Soonr connects you to the mobile cloud, adds project management

The mobile cloud is essential. In the past when we each had a single computer, it wasn't necessary. But now we all have a menagerie of gadgets and computers: home computer, work computer, laptop computer, iPhone, netbook. I was just out of town for a few days, and it would have made my life so much easier if I'd had all of my gizmos in sync. That's what Soonr does for you.
